|"The wine taste with the pineapple and the light and dainty background of the white tea was exquisite."|
The true pineapple flavour was achieved by using both pineapple pieces and pineapple flavouring along with light lemongrass notes to bring out the tropicality of the pineapple. I think its genius, the lemon doesn't come across as lemon, but conveys the pineapple flavour and enhances the flavour. The tea isn't any more sweet than the typical white tea, but the pineapple taste is there and delicious. The second time that I brewed this delight I detected a white wine like taste, like what I would expect a dry pineapple white wine to taste like, but most similar to an Elderberry wine that I have actually experienced. The wine taste with the pineapple and the light and dainty background of the white tea was exquisite. This second brew was done at 190˚F for 4 minutes, 3 rounded teaspoons in about 750mL of water in my Breville One-Touch Tea Maker.
